Side by Side They Seem Sooo Different...
Yet they are both 2-seaters (GSX-L & RXP-X). When I bought the GSX-L in '99 it seemed a bit on the large side. My how times have changed!

I know what you meen. They just keep getting bigger. They just dont make em like they used to. The bigger they get the less fun they are IMO.

"I have to disagree. I think they are at the PERFECT size. not to big and not to huge and still capable of getting them out of the water if you want."
"+ 1 great size IMO.. I also have no problem getting verticle when I feel the need."
Don't get me wrong, as I love my RXP-X, but it burns twice the fuel as my 65+mph GSX-L/DI, and takes twice the HP to do the same tricks. That said I'd take the P-X any day when the wind & chop are up and I need to cover distance.
While working on the roof I looked down at the trailer and it just struck me as amazing to see the comparison. An interesting perspective.

I'm not saying they are not fun but when it comes to jumping or running bouys these things are tanks. If you have ever ridden an x-4, stand up or wave blaster then you know what I mean. I can take an x-4 and 180 bunny hop. This would never be possible on one of todays skis. Dont get me wrong I love my rxp's but they are a different type of riding. 350lbs vs 700 something is a huge difference.

I'll always keep my HX, regardless of whatever couch is the flavor of the year.

Darth, yeah there is a huge difference, BUT, one is a three seater and while the other is often called a two seater, I'd argue that it really isn't, unless you compare it to an HX.
BTW the XP looks good. I'm in the process of restoring one, now.
